Ms. Margaret Orech's Story

One wonder woman, one wonder lady, one wonder mum, her incredible story! I long for the day her story will be written! It must be written! I am proud to be her son. God will make a way where there seems to be no way ... goes her favourite song and belief! Bakata, never indulge in worries! She would often tell me!

Back in 1985, one lady, her three sons. Your truelly the eldest then six years old and right now in Juba, Southern Sudan, James four years Old then, now in Yorkshire North England, and David, then the baby, two years old and now student in university. The last born, Esther is studying in Algeria.

In 1985, when the rumours the Anyanya 2 /SPLA /M insurgency in the east was threatening to engulf the better part of Southern Sudan, circumstances forced her to single handedly smuggle her children from southern Sudan, through Congo and into Uganda. Its is a tale to be told! She was captured, and tormented by the Sudanese police in Yei, but managed to smuggle herself and her three children to freedom and eventually .... It is a story!

Come the year 1999! Tragedy befell her! An ambush by the LRA of Joseph Kony sent her to the abyss of life! Robbed, ... and amputated, she was to get back into business ...
